Toronto's first referral-only medical marijuana clinic opens its doors

TORONTO, July 14, 2014 /CNW/ - Cannabinoid Medical Clinic (CMClinic), Toronto's first referral-only prescription cannabinoid and medical marijuana clinic, announced it opened its doors today. CMClinic, located at Yonge and Eglinton, is dedicated to helping patients find effective treatment for chronic and serious conditions through the use of prescription cannabinoids and medical marijuana.

CMClinic only accepts patients who have been referred to the clinic by their physician or medical specialist. These patients have typically exhausted traditional first-line treatment options. The clinic enables physicians, who may be unfamiliar with prescribing cannabinoids and medical marijuana, to help their patients access this alternative therapy. The physicians at the CMClinic have been researching and developing best practices in order to provide patients and physicians with the information necessary when deciding to use medical marijuana.

"When prescribed correctly and under the supervision of knowledgeable physicians, prescription cannabinoids or medical marijuana can play a meaningful role in a patient's treatment plan, effectively managing symptoms and improving quality of life," said Dr. Danial Schecter, Executive Director of CMClinic. "We are pleased to be able to serve and educate, doctors and patients."
